The Magnadyne supports it, but I can't see any value for it in my Solera since I don't have a rear speaker system in mine. I think it may work when feeding audio from a video disk to the TV, using the TV speakers as the extra set, but I'm not sure. I don't buy music, so I'm not sure if audio discs have this or not, but even with video discs, the disc has to be encoded for 5.1
There is also a 7.1 encoding too, but I've not seen much on the market supporting it.
